The school started in 2011 and enrolsaround 300 students 14 to 20 years of age, offering the O level high school grades (Grades 8 – 11).  It is operated by the Nyakaginogo Anglican Parish (Church of Uganda), Rwenzori Diosese, which owns the land on which the school is situated.

The church operates two schools as part of its community program and seeks to support the impoverished community which has suffered lack of basic services due to remoteness, government neglect, wars in the area and some environmental calamities. Apart from providing basic education,  the church is also committed to pastoral care and health services.

Presently the school has an incomplete structure which consists of three classrooms and an office. Presently they use the church building to supplement space, especially in bad weather.

School and church authorities have appied to Classrooms for Africa for help.
